The Advanced Dental Admission Test (ADAT) is an admission test designed to provide advanced dental education programs with a means to assess applicants’ potential for success. Third- and fourth-year dental students and practicing dentists interested in post-graduate training (e.g., in a dental specialty area), and international dental students applying to advanced dental education programs or advanced standing in pre-doctoral programs, are encouraged to apply to take the ADAT. The ADAT is being administered at Pearson VUE test centers in the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Canada from April 3, 2017 to August 31, 2017. The 2017 ADAT Application is now available. Choose Apply Now below. Please select the highlights below for more information about the ADAT.

The ADAT consists of multiple-choice test questions presented in English, and includes a battery of three tests on the following: Biomedical Sciences; Clinical Sciences; Data, Research Interpretation, and Evidence-Based Dentistry.
